By Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa

Travellers searching for a pure Maldivian experience need look no further than the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa. Located at the heart of one of the largest and deepest natural atolls in the world, the resort provides guests with a private and secluded island experience

The location

Hadahaa is untouched and authentic and its unique location, away from the teeming atolls of the north, blesses its guests with a pure Maldivian experience. The careful and seamless integration of environment, culture and modern design provides the perfect place to rest, relax, and recharge.

Environmentally friendly credentials 

Situated on a private island 30 miles north of the equator, the resort features one of the healthiest house reefs in the Maldives. Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa takes its environmentally friendly credentials seriously, as the only resort in the country certified for both design and construction by EarthCheck and certified Gold by Green Globe for its sustainability efforts.

Utmost comfort

Featuring a total of 50 land and water villas, the minimalist-styled villas are designed with maximum comfort in mind. Whether nestled within the island’s tropical foliage or elevated above the water, guests are only steps away from the cool ocean waters and idyllic beach. All villas feature floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that lead out to a private deck, some fitted with a personal plunge pool, and direct access to the beach. Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa also offers luxurious villa options, with the introduction of the deluxe park pool villas and two-bedroom park pool villas. Both villas include a pool and an outdoor cabana, perfect for intimate evenings. Families and couples can now enjoy extra comfortable accommodations to rest and relax, enhancing a truly unique Maldivian experience.

Spoiled for choice 

Gourmets have a surfeit of choice at all-day venue The Dining Room, where long, luxurious breakfasts, healthy lunches and hearty dinners are served in a light and airy atmosphere. Romantic eatery The Island Grill opens in the evening for candlelit, barefoot dinners and offers international and regionally inspired dishes in a breathtakingly beautiful yet casual setting. In addition to modern and innovative à la carte dishes, the culinary team prepares sumptuous themed evening buffets throughout the week, ranging from international flavours to traditional Maldivian cuisine, enriching the private island experience. For those with culinary flair, cooking classes and chef’s table experiences can also be arranged upon request. Meanwhile, the contemporary poolside bar and the unique Dhoni are great places to sit back, unwind and enjoy a refreshing drink.

Intimate setting

For special occasions there are a variety of private dining experiences, including an intimate starlight setting, a romantic sunset beach dinner and a traditional Maldivian spread, each showcasing a unique aspect of the island. And for the ultimate in relaxation, a sumptuous menu of favourites can be served privately in the comforts of the guests’ villa at any time.

Pure paradise

A range of aqua-centric activities allow guests to make the most of the natural surroundings and the experienced team at Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa’s five-star PADI Dive and Activity Centre, Blue Journeys, creates tailored experiences. The resort is home to a 360-degree house reef and is paradise for snorkelling and diving, with seemingly limitless varieties of marine life. Local island visits, dolphin spotting, sunset cruises and a Cross the Equator trip make for everlasting memories.

Good health

The Vidhun Spa, inspired by the traditions and remedies of the Maldives, offers individual and couples’ treatments, and features five private villas, a tranquillity pool and whirlpool. Guests can experience the history of Maldivian holistic wellness with the healing techniques of Dhivehibey, the islands’ indigenous curative heritage. To ensure that good health shines both inside and out, private or shared yoga sessions complete the spa’s wellness offerings.

Unique Features

Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa’s unique location offers guests a quiet and serene environment. Its close proximity to the equator provides a unique night sky of constellations from both northern and southern hemispheres. It’s the first and only hotel in the Maldives certified by EarthCheck for adherence to international environmental standards for design, planning and construction.

Each water villa has its own panoramic view of the Indian Ocean from the villa’s private deck. Each land villa is separated by lush, native vegetation allowing the villa to be in its own private enclave — each having its own private access to the beach and house reef just feet away.

The Dhoni was constructed by Maldivian boat builders from the Raa Atoll; it’s a unique structure, not just at the resort but in the Maldives as a whole, and welcomes guests by doubling as a check-in area and somewhere to enjoy a refreshing drink.

Hadahaa’s in-house marine biologist provides guests with information on the house reef and how to treat the marine environment during their stay.
